Rating: Majoram EO is MY "rosemary". this one doesn't disappoint. Fresh fresh and just enough ZING. EVERY blend that calls for Rosemary gets maj in its place (I prefer the scent) try it and see. Wish I bought the bigger bottle.

Rating: Marjoram Sweet is wonderful. I am under extreme stress for the last couple of days. The stress has triggered an extremely heavy period, with significant amount of blood clot. After applying about 10 drops of this, mixed with almond sweet. It stops! I applied a different EO everyday, marjoram sweet is the one that stop the clotting, & then the bleeding.

Rating: Can't say enough good things about this oil. This works amazing as a stop-snoring aid; put some in a diffuser with some peppermint and lavender at night, and voila! I also used it in a rub for my tummy for menstrual cramps and nausea; worked like a charm. Sweet marjoram has a nice natural scent that blends very well with so many other EOs.

Rating: Marjoram is lovely on tight muscles. I do not dilute it with a carrier oil when I use it on my neck and shoulders. It's great with a carrier oil for a message because it helps the muscles relax. The sent is very pleasing and not overpowering. Thanks New Directions.

Rating: Excellent as part of my EO blend for a muscle rub that I use on my husband! He loves that fact that the balm does not smell like TigerBalm. And it seems to be more effective!
